In the beginning of 2013, two metalsmiths were frustrated with the opportunities to showcase their work in Chicago. They wanted a craft show that was both in a relaxed and fun environment but also consisted of a high quality of artwork. They decided to create their own show: Revolution Craft Show - Bringing Art to the People.
The Revolution Craft Show exists to provide a welcoming and affordable event for new and seasoned artists. Each show is carefully curated to provide a wide variety of unique, high quality and handmade work. We aim to partner with Chicago venues that provide a fun atmosphere for attendees to shop and linger. Whenever possible we coordinate with a variety of local food trucks to complement the venue’s beer selection.
The results of our efforts: a growing group of artists outfitted with a thicker skin, deeper confidence in themselves and their community, and the courage to navigate the field of art and craft.
The Revolution Craft Show is organized by Michelle Dieschbourg.
